I just finished designing this 28-page art magazine for a local organization – Arts at the Lake. If you live anywhere near the Brazos Valley, love art and can’t afford to go to the Aggie game that weekend, then plan on checking out this art trail. Pretty cool that we have something like this here. This year’s art trail won’t happen until Nov. 2-3, but you can get an idea of what it has to offer by checking out this year’s magazine. To see how far this art trail magazine has come, check out last year’s brochure.
This is my fourth edition of The Informer, the official newsletter of AIAEE. I inherited it in 2008 and was asked to give it a completely new look and feel. Although I am primarily responsible for layout and design, I occasionally supplement submitted articles with my own photography and even write some of the content myself when it is needed to help fill space. Here’s just one example of The Informer.
Because of my involvement with AIAEE long after I graduated from my master’s program at Texas A&M, I was asked to design the conference program and schedule for AIAEE‘s 25th Annual Conference, which just happened to be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I also got to tag along for the week and bring Brady too! It made for a very nice and educational vacation. Second trip to Puerto Rico for me, but the first for Brady. I love the culture and cuisine of this little island paradise. And the best part? You don’t even need a passport.
This is the second design project I’ve been asked to do for AIAEE. Their current brochure was outdated, so they asked me to design a new brochure for them. Since I had already developed a visual “brand” for them for their newsletter, I made sure to use those same visual elements in the brochure to tie all their print pieces together. I also went with a bi-fold brochure. Tri-folds are so last year.
